When I was just a little girl, dad had to be convinced that our first dog should stick around. After all, the little puppy kept leaving “lakes and logs” that my dad was unfortunate to find with his bare feet. Luckily, our dog seemed to know he had to work on my dad, and made sure to burp right in his face one day. That sealed the deal because it made him laugh (and burping contests were a regular occurrence in our house too). It was obvious the dog fit in perfectly and had to stay.
Now it’s your turn! Share a story, and good luck winning the prize. The winner will be chosen at random and contacted by email soon after the giveaway ends.
Congrats to Shellie who wrote this in her entry:
My husband is a cop. While on patrol one day, he spotted a car stopped on the side of the road and pulled over to offer assistance. A father was there with his little girl whose arms were around a dog who had been tied up to the side of the road. She was crying and asking her daddy if she could keep him. The father gently told her no and my husband took the dog and put him in the back of his car. When my hubby later talked to the Animal Control officer, he said he would take him but was reluctatnt and it made my husband uneasy so he brought the poor pointer home. I thought he was the saddest thing I’d ever seen. His coat was lackluster and he was so thin that you could see his heart beating through his chest. He followed my husband wherever he went, adn my hubby had to sleep on the couch with him because he kept having panic attacks. 4 years later Buster is still with us and is a happy boy. He’s so devoted to my husband and we love him so much. He had to go on meds for his panic attacks, but now he is healthy, happy and well adjusted.
